The set continued its Kanto themes by teasing that the hugely popular Eevee will also return in the Summer 2022 expansion. Interestingly, the developer teased that Eevee would debut as a “new rarity.”
“Popular Pokémon are now available in new rarities! Eevee, a Pokémon that also appeared in Eevee Heroes, will be included as a new Rarity Pokémon,” they wrote. While it’s unclear if this means a new Pokemon card variant, the idea of an Eevee card rare is certainly exciting.
Since most cards so far have been focused on Gen I, maybe in the future we’ll see more Pokemon Go TCG expansions focused on a new generation. This would be fitting given that Niantic will introduce additional region Pokedexes over time, and would be a nice way to reflect mobile title release cycles.
